As a child growing up in a strongly religious family, I was thought that everything which is opposite to the teachings of the Holy Bible, including laziness is a sin. I tried my best to live a clean life. We were thought to believe that Israel, Jerusalem, and other Biblical countries were all in heaven, without a slight knowledge those countries were on the same earth we are living today.

When I left my family looking for a job, I tried to be sincere and prevented doing anything wrong which could land me in jail. I read that jail changes people’s attitude to be good or worse. But I wasn’t interested to know the positive or negative influences of jail on people. My only interest is never to be there because it’s not the right place for me.

In the year 1990, from Lagos, Nigeria, I made a transit in Rome, on my way to German. In Rome, I was detained at the Fiumicino airport. The Italian immigration regularly does that to many foreigners, especially Africans. Like a tourist, I walked around the airport lounge without a room to sleep and food for three days. On the third, I was really starving, so I approached one of the immigration officials and said to him that I am hungry. He looked at my face and asked me “Am I your father?” Then he walked away.

Without knowing what the officials have in store for me, I handed over an application for asylum as a journalist and it worked, because I have some few publications over my profession on me. On the fourth day, from nowhere came one of the immigration officers, he said to me: “Your application has been accepted, today the police will come to take you to Rome.” I was shocked beyond expression.

Rome, January 31, 1991 Ex Pastificio Pantanella occupied by hundreds of Asian immigrants from Pakistan and Bangladesh. The Police evacuate the Pantanella.

 The good Samaritan didn’t only deliver the unexpected message, but he pulled out from his pocket a number of notes and said to me: “I don’t want my colleagues to see me giving you money, buy some food to eat at the airport.” I didn’t take the money. I told him: “This important information you have given to me has taken all the hunger away, thank you.” He walked away with his money.

On the fourth day, the police came, just as the officer told me and took me in a police car to the city, Rome, and left me there to fight for my survival. Without anywhere to sleep, I passed all my nights at the Central Train Station. Among other Africans, we watched a big television screen during the day to forget our misery, then in the night, I go to sleep at my hiding place. The police and the workers at the train station never discovered the place I slept.

After some time, I discovered places where I could eat every day without paying for food. I could take my bath and take some clothes. One of such places was at ‘Via Dandolo.’ Daniela, the head of the Caritas (Charity) at Via Dandolo, was a very good woman, but one of her female workers was a very bad woman. A thief. Since we had no address, our letters passed through the Caritas at Via Dandola and this woman took the opportunity to steal money from our letters.

I caught her twice, so I wasn’t surprised when I lost the 10 pounds a friend sent me from England, but I didn’t tell Daniela about it. Through the Caritas, I had my initial lessons and attended classes to learn the Italian. I was one of the best immigrants who could write and speak the language fluently, yet my life was miserable because I was still sleeping at the train station.

In Rome, I was robbed, admitted and operated at a hospital, but the nurse refused to touch me, because of my color, thus; every morning when on duty, she calls someone to attend to me, but she had time for every Italian patient at the hospital. I was once sitting in the hospital’s garden after the operation, when an Italian old man, one of the patients came close to me, looked at my face and said to me: “Marocchino motaccizoa.” – an insult, after mistakenly taken me as a Moroccan. I didn’t say a word.

Then all of a sudden, as if it was announced on the radio, all the immigrants in Rome, without accommodation, discovered an abandoned Pasta factory called ‘Pantanella.’ Pantanella is notoriously known for all criminal activities, including drug peddling and crime, similar to drug cartel zones of Mexico. One needs strength, courage, heart and braveness to survive at that place. Italians think they are brave, but many of them dare to pass Via Casilina, the street Pantanella is located in the night.

That was the place I lived and worked as a toilet cleaner for thousands of immigrants, using six containers as toilets, to raise money to feed. I was employed by the Muslim head at the place. It’s terrible and frightening to live at Pantenella. It wasn’t a prison, but the place, I think was tough like Alcatraz, because of the criminal activities many illegal immigrants engaged in feeding.

The abandoned factory accommodated both soft and hardened criminals from various countries, including Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Africa etc. I lived in Pantanella for four months, and the Italian government tired of the crimes going on in that abandoned Pasta factory ejected all the foreigners.

But the Italian government did something great for the African immigrants. Something we weren’t expecting. The government paid for two weeks stay in a hotel for all the Africans, with the ultimatum that before the two weeks expired, we should find a place on our own to live.

Through a very good sympathetic woman called Nana, (she died in Rome a few years ago) I got a job as a houseboy to serve one journalist called Claudio Lavazza, working at television station TG2, belonging to the former Italian Prime Minister, Sylvio Berlusconi. He provided me accommodation and paid me well. Besides, he gave me the new version of Fiat Cinque Cento (500) to drive. It may be likely that I was the first black man in the entire Italy to drive the new Fiat Cinque Cento when it freshly came out. I met other journalist friends of Claudio, including Michele Cucuzza.

After three years, I said goodbye to Rome and returned to Africa. I married and returned to Europe once again but this time choosing Amsterdam. ‘Overseas Chronicle: The Rome and Amsterdam Experience’ is a book once started you’ll find it hard to put away, because of the shocking intriguing stories in the book. Find out more of what happened to me in Rome and later in Holland, which led me to detention in Amsterdam.

Technology Can Help Improve Your Life, Yet You Can’t Cheat Nature

Dolly

‘Joseph’s coat of many colors’ couldn’t prevent Dolly Parton from plastic surgery. Wasn’t she beautiful before the surgical operation?

Once working in Amsterdam, I said to my colleague: “The old photographs of Michael Jackson show how handsome he was, wondering the motive behind his nose job.”

The colleague looked at me and said: “If you have money like Michael Jackson, believe me, you will do more than what he did. Money tells people what to do, you’re poor the reason you’re criticizing him.”

I didn’t argue with him but I thought of what he said to me the whole day. I have never hated any part of my body since from my youth and through my adulthood. So what does he mean that if I have money I will do more than what he did?

It’s unfortunate that many people don’t like they way they look or hate something particularly on the body, which they think don’t make them attractive.

As modern technology advances, people that want to change something on the body are actively engaged to plastic surgery, despite apparent negative consequences.

Those who undergo surgical correction may seem very happy after the operation some few years later, but I don’t have words to describe how horrible some of them looked like in their ripe age.

Whether smaller nose,  sexy lips, tighter tummy or perkier breasts, plastic surgery can take it’s toll on your health one day. Many went under knife to be beautiful, but at the moment they looked like creatures from different planet trying to find home among us.

Yes, technology can improve your health and life but you can never cheat nature. Your body and leg reveal you are over fifty but your face reveals you are about thirty-five or you wear mask. Are you satisfied about that? Don’t deceive yourself.

Why Big Pharma Killed President Dwight Eisenhower

MAN 4

Original article published by: mnwelldir.org

Dear Friend,

On September 24, 1955, President Eisenhower – World War II hero and beloved president – was playing golf at his Denver home, when he suddenly collapsed from what was a rare disease at the time.

He had a heart attack.

Although nobody knew it then… and though you won’t read about it in any history book…

This was a watershed moment that would change the course of modern medicine forever.

One that would make heart disease the #1 killer of Americans – and would establish Big Pharma as America’s #1 most profitable industry.

Hi, my name is Dr. Al Sears.

The story I’m unveiling today has HUGE implications for your personal health, and that of your family.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with heart disease, you need to know the exact details of what took place.

Because this story doesn’t just tell you WHO is responsible…

It tells you WHY.

As in…

  • WHY heart disease rates have soared since 1955 – even as consumption of “heart-healthy” foods and cholesterol-lowering drugs has skyrocketed.
  • WHY you could become victim of this drug-induced tragedy – no matter your cholesterol levels or intake of fat.
  • And 100 billion reasons why Big Pharma will NEVER cure heart disease.

That’s why historian Larry Schweikart calls it “the single most important medical case of the twentieth century.”

Yet the REAL story behind it is virtually unknown.

Within 24 hours of Ike’s heart attack, special interests seized the opportunity.

They manufactured a crisis, a founding myth, and a “solution.”

They shoved this propaganda down the American public’s throat.

And in doing so, they singlehandedly sent America’s health spiraling downhill for the next six decades.

Over the next few minutes, I’ll expose this near-60-year-old Big Pharma conspiracy. I’ll name the names. I’ll track the money. And at each stage, I’ll answer the BIG question: “Who benefits?”

What’s more, I’ll reveal how you can safeguard yourself from heart disease forever with solutions that are 100 percent natural, affordable, effective, and safe.

Dwight D. Eisenhower: The War Hero Who Led the Allies to Victory on D-Day and Ultimately Won World War II

MAN 5

General Eisenhower gives his famous “full victory, nothing less” speech to the U.S. Company E, 502nd Parachute Infantry Regiment (Strike) of the 101st Airborne Division the night before the D-Day invasion of France.

On June 6, 1944 – now known as D-Day – future President Dwight David Eisenhower, then supreme commander of Allied Expeditionary Forces in World War, II gave the go-ahead for a massive invasion of Europe called Operation Overlord.

He told the troops the “eyes of the world are upon you,” and called the operation a crusade in which “we will accept nothing less than full victory.”

Following the successful Normandy Invasion, Allied forces under Eisenhower broke the beachhead and began driving across France. In early 1945, the Allies pushed the Nazis out of France. By May 7, 1945, the Nazis formally surrendered, ending the war in Europe.

Eisenhower’s leadership and fame would win him the presidency seven years later. Many fondly remember him as “one of the last great presidents.”

But before I go into the details of this story any further—how it spun off the #1 heart disease lie, ultimately claiming Eisenhower as its first victim—please allow me to fully introduce myself.

You see, I’ve spent the last…

30 Years Fighting Big Pharma
on Behalf of My Patients

Since graduating from medical school three decades ago, I’ve worked hard to develop a different kind of practice.

One that makes the health of my patients my highest priority. Even if that means bucking the “respectable” health establishment.

The truth is, conventional medicine, for all of its genius and innovations, has failed the everyday American.

It has enriched a few corrupt government bureaucrats and their crony CEOs at the expense of your health.

And it’s done so under the cover of clever marketing disguised as “scientific research.”

That’s why I help my patients read between the lines and open the curtains on Big Pharma’s façade.

And there’s NO bigger lie than the heart disease myth I’m debunking today.

Dr. George Mann, a lead researcher in the legendary Framingham Heart Study, called it, “the greatest scam in the history of medicine.”

It’s a lie developed by junk science, advertised by corporate interests, and rubber stamped by bought-off politicians.

And it only remains a “fact” because it supports Big Pharma’s $100 billion a year cholesterol-lowering drug industry.

President Eisenhower was the first victim of this grand conspiracy.

And it didn’t stop there.

Since then, it’s claimed the lives of 950,000 Americans every year – adding up to millions over the last few decades.

Odds are, you or somebody you know or love is a victim of it too.

But the good news is, it does NOT have to be that way.

Dr. Al Sears, M.D.
Uniquely Qualified to Keep You
Healthier For Life

Doc 2

Dr. Al Sears, M.D. currently owns and operates a successful integrative medicine and anti-aging clinic in Royal Palm Beach, Florida, with over 25,000 patients. His cutting-edge therapies and reputation for solving some of the most difficult-to-diagnose cases attract patients from around the world.

As a graduate of the University of South Florida College of Medicine, Dr. Sears scored in the 99th percentile on his MCAT and graduated with honors in Internal Medicine, Neurology, Psychiatry, and Physical Medicine.

After entering private practice, Dr. Sears was one of the first to be board-certified in anti-aging medicine. As a pioneer in this new field of medicine, he is an avid researcher, published author, and enthusiastic lecturer. He is the first doctor licensed in the U.S. to administer TA-65, the most important breakthrough in anti-aging medicine today.

There are alternative therapies you can use to prevent and EVEN reverse heart disease – without expensive drugs, procedures, or even doctor visits.

There are safe treatments that could forever rid your body of heart disease. Treatments you can apply from home, for pennies on the dollar.

But they’re natural, so Big Pharma can’t patent them.

That’s why they do NOT want you to hear about them.

In just a moment, I’ll share with you the shocking details of nine censored heart solutions … where you can find them at your local grocery, health food store, or pharmacy… and how you can begin using them TODAY.

If you’re one of 70 percent of Americans suffering with some form of heart disease, I urge you to read on for the details.

What you’re about to see could save you a fortune on insanely expensive heart procedures.

Conventional therapies like…

  • A $1,500-a-pop statin (cholesterol-lowering) drug prescription…
  • A $40,000 coronary stent…
  • A $200,000 (or more) coronary bypass surgery…

These so-called “therapies” not only put your life at risk…

They could also deplete or even wipe out your retirement savings – even if you have health insurance or Medicare. (According to CNBC, medical bills are America’s #1 cause of bankruptcy, with 1.7 million Americans going bankrupt every year. And procedures like open heart surgery are some of the most expensive out there.)

And the worst part is, it’s all for nothing.

Did you know, for instance, that 85 percent of heart bypass surgeries are unnecessary?

Yet specialists love them because they can cost $200,000 (or more). Not a bad payday.

And the statin drug guidelines are so broad, almost 95 percent of new users are being prescribed drugs they don’t need.

 

President Eisenhower’s Farewell Address

Pres 1

President Dwight D. Eisenhower

President Eisenhower warns the American public as he leaves office on January 17, 1961

You’ve likely heard about Eisenhower’s famous farewell address, and his warning of the “undue influence warranted by the military-industrial complex.”

Eisenhower was no stranger to the dangers of monopoly corporations pulling the strings of government to increase their power and influence.

What made the military-industrial complex all the more dangerous was its ability to manufacture enemies and crises – which then stirs the American public into a war frenzy, leading to greater war spending and profits.

Big Pharma – the “medical industrial complex” – is no different. They can as easily manufacture health crises – “epidemics” that call for new drugs and therapies, which the unelected FDA then rubber-stamps.
